Yesterday, the region saw a stricter side of Royal District Nurses as they led a stop work rally the last day at the front of the RDNS Headquarters in Alma Rd, St Kilda.
This hard kick to the second part of their industrial campaign after initially instituted clerical bans have finally bought the company to the table.
Uncovering the rise of issue, Victorian Branch Secretary Ms. Lisa Fitzpatrick said that last week talks uncertainly broke down between the union and RDNS management, which further escalated the industrial action and the situation that has aroused today.
In their fight against the management, the union decided to put five work stops across Melbourne, of which St Kilda stop work was the first action.
RDNS nurses are demanding wage rises and clearance over reasons for the insufficient funding to the RDNS by Premier, Mr. Ted Baillieu.
"Despite making progress in negotiations last week, management walked away and circulated an agreement to nurses for ballot that the union had never seen and would not recommend to its members," she said.
The next demand of nurses that was cleared by Ms. Fitzpatrick in her statement was that the group is looking forward to receive all the back pay entitlements since March 21. No decisions are yet out.
